This design closely follows Japanese practice, with its mid mounted pump and the hose cart in the rear compartment, loaded with flaked delivery hoses.

But - unlike Japanese pumpers, the suction hoses are stored on the roof - instead of being curled up on the rear fenders and piped into the pump inlets for rapid connection to a hydrant or underground water cistern.

This unit also has an on-board tank - which is rather unusual in Japan; it also has additional locker accommodations and more ground ladders than most Japanese units...
